DPS That stuff wrapped in paper is ganja.
For the third time in less than a year, a huge amount of marijuana was found hidden among watermelons in the back of a truck.
The first weed-melon truck was discovered near New River in May 2009, when law enforcement discovered 508 pounds of chronic. The second happened about two weeks ago, when officers found about 9,500 pounds.
The latest weed-melon attempt wasn't as bold as trying to move 9,500 pounds of weed in a watermelon truck, but it's still a notable score for law enforcement.
Officers stopped the rig for several equiptment violations. After getting consent to search the truck, officers discovered the weed wrapped in wallpaper in the load of watermelons.
Cops estimated the street value of the weed is $278,300.
